Museum of Anthropology (at UBC)

This month I spent some time in Vancouver and enjoyed exploring the UBC campus. One of the highlights for me was the Museum of Anthropology.

They have a variety of old and new artifacts from various cultures and places around the world, but what fascinated me the most is their huge collection of Northwest Coast Aboriginal Canadian art.

Here are a few examples, older and newer:


This would be a fantastic museum for a field trip. I envy the UBC students who get free admission anytime and who get to study here as part of their courses! If I teach in the Vancouver area I will definitely bring my classes here.
